These are Excellent videos for those who would like to know more about rifle shooting. They are great for both the beginner and the expert who needs a refresher. The series focuses on the M1 garand, but the techniques can be applied to any rifle. part one covers sling usage and shooting positions. Part 2 covers sight adjustments and also has one of the BEST explanations of windage adjustments EVER. The film was made in 1942/43 for the war department and is now in the public domain, so it can be copied and recopied at will. Please give a copy to anyone you may think would be interested in becoming a better shooter then visit www.rwva.org to find out about an APPLESEED shoot.
Special thanks to Jack A Sol of the Revolutionary War Veterans Association for making these videos available to the general public.
I watched this movie some time ago and it was excellent however after watching it again today I have realized that it is not the same movie. The original movie apparently has been replaced with this one. There is no part 1 and the windage and elevation instructions are missing.
The description is wrong. This movie starts with part 2 not part one and part 2 are the firing positions.

Wow, I know it's popular, why no reviews?
If you are, or think you might be someday, a Rifleman, you need these videos.
perhaps it's a popular LINK outside of this website, which is why there are few reviews.

Should be in everyone collection
If you own an M1 or simply and WWII history buff this a must video. While it says Part 1, Part two is also ready to view. You can also download the MPEG-4 version which is ready for those with a video Ipod
